Technical specifications, photos and description:
1970 DODGE CHALLENGER R/T
THIS IS AN ORIGINAL R/T CHALLENGER 2 DOOR HARDTOP.
This Challenger left the factory with the 383 Magnum engine (gone). but now has a professionally (race) built 440 Six Pack with 727 automatic transmission. See more
about the engine and transmission further down please.
I would classify this car as being in a strong #2 condition. It has not had a rotisserie restoration. but even better. it retains most of its original features. and body panels. Partial restoration includes repaint and new "Year One" interior. Those parts that remain original are in excellent condition. This Challenger is also well documented. See more about original features and non-stock equipment below please.

I cannot substantiate this engine information. except all claims seem plausible and probable from driving the car and what can be visually verified.

505 cubic inch stoker (APPROXIMATELY 550 HORSEPOWER no documentation to substantiate. but seems reasonable after pressing the accelerator).

Edlebrock Performer aluminum RPM heads

OTHER THINGS TO KNOW:
The motor in this car creates the most beautiful exhaust note and epitomizes the muscle car
sound and performance!!
The AM 8-track Stereo is original to the car. serviced years ago and works. but has issues.
The car features the cool "Rim Blow" three spoke steering wheel. an original option on the car!
Tires are very new BF Goodrich brand tires.
The car is tight and handles very good (for a 47 year old car)!
While the heater works. the heater/AC fan does not work. Also. the heater cable is broken
(fairly easy replacement).
This is an AC car. however. the compressor is missing.
The emergency brake cable is broken and needs replacement.
All the original speakers (3 in-dash and 2 on rear package tray) appear to be original and work.
The dash pad is the more rare THREE SPEAKER DASH! Original to the car. no cracks and in
The console is original. It has some minor blemishes and a small crack by the shifter.
The cigar lighter is missing.
All gauge lights and interior lights work.
The spare tire is missing. however. the jack is still with the car.
No rust on the car. Body work was beautifully done before the repaint and new vinyl roof.
Trunk floor was replaced and the entire trunk compartment is in excellent. like-new condition.
The front right fender has a very small scratch about 1" long on top. and the corner next to the
window cowl is bent upwards very slightly; otherwise The body and paint are EXCELLENT!
All trim on the car is in very good original condition. but may have an occasional nick or ding.
The "go-wing" is not original to the car. however. the trunk lid is an original 1970 wing decklid
with correct 36" bracket spacing.
The flip-top gas cap was not original to the car. but is an original piece. and not a reproduction.
Listed in the Chrysler Registry (but I do not have this documentation)
Front shocks are "standard". rear has air shocks (not original).
Shifter handle is an aftermarket with cool Mopar 4-speed pistol grip styling.
SOME INTERESTING FACTS
The lowest verifiable production option on this car is the drivetrain combination of 383 4V/A-727/3. 55 Axle (due to the rarity of the A36 axle package). making it 2. 7% of total JS23 production. or about 1 of 369 R/T hardtops.
Factor in the FJ5 Sublime HI IMPACT paint (which was about 6. 7% of total JS23 production. or about 1 of 916 R/T hardtops). with that drivetrain combination production option percentage drops even lower.
Other unusual features of this Challenger are it's early production date of September 1969. and the Y17 Chrysler Executive Lease Program code are uncommon.
This car was photographed for an ad campaign for Purolator Oil Filters (see photo included). however. the ad never appeared in any publications.
